70?! That can't be right. It turned WEST. The resultant bearing has to be greater that 110º.
9.12 isn't goo either.
Too bad you didn't show your work or someone could point out where you wandered off.
A luxury liner leaves port on a bearing of 110.0 degrees and travels 8.8 mi. It then turns due west and travels 2.4 mi. How far is the liner from port, and what is its bearing from port?
I used my knowledge of bearings and triangles and created a triangle and i got this for my answer:
the liner is approx. 9.12 miles from the port
70 degrees is the liner bearing from the port
is this right?if not what did i do wrong?
